It would be a better fight tho, cuz Roy could still catch him.
Hopkins made that fight ugly. Too much clutching, I felt like i was watching a super heavyweight bout.
I think after seeing Calzaghes performance last night That Roy could go the distance, but I dont see a win. Calzaghe didn't have that knockout power, and thats usually the key to beating Roy's glass jaw. Other than that Roy would probably play mind games with him.

Yea, Calzhage didnt really hurt hopkins...neither guy really hurt eachother. I think part of it was BHop clutching and keeping Joe from those combination flurries. He was always off balance cuz of it.
But i really dont like Roy Jones...never did. I loved it when he got knocked the fuck out...i'd like to see it again, although i think Pavlik/Calzhage would be the best fight.

Seems as though the only way to beat Roy Jones is to have knock-out power. Like I said, he has a glass jaw, but if you dont have that power, Roy will sit and there and toy with ya and make look ridiculous.

Joe's slaps wont KO Roy, but I feel he could tire him out with his work rate

Roy Jones for the win though!

thats true, joe doesnt have the KO power, it looks like he slaps half the time.

but hes very conditioned and can easily last 12 rounds with gas still in him.

problem with joe is that hes sometimes boring. against jeff lacy he was amazing, and against bhop kinda less amazing.

having said that, it would be good for him to finish off with roy.

who'd win?

joe definitely. i mean roy fought whom?when? roy hasnt been around for a while and hasnt been tested by credible opponents lately.

roy v joe would be a 12 rounder with joe winning with points. no stoppage here, because joe isnt known as a hard hitter, just a damn good boxer.



Pavlik v joe would be beautiful.

Thank You, if I knew how to rep I would.

I love Barrera and Naseem. Naseem is a figter I enjoy watching, but he's gets in trouble when it comes to icon fighters.

No problem on the link. Isn't it crazy how Hamed practically dissapeared from boxing after this ass-whooping? It would have at least been interesting to see him in against Morales and some other top contenders from that time but I think that Barrera literally beat the fight out of Hamed lol. Peace-

for a 43y/o to make the 'undefeated' calzaghe look not too impressive barely winning and scoring a k.o. in the first, i thought b-hop's rep aint go down too much. like emanuel steward was sayin, hopkins never 'clearly' lost any of the fights he didnt win. all 5 of them.

Well....Hopkins is the KING of taking fighters out of their fight and making the fight look ugly/unimpressive. Maybe if he didn't clinch after EVERY exchange Joe could have let his hands go a little more? I know you meant knockdown and not KO but still, that was pretty much a flash knockdown with Joe being off-balance (it was a perfect right by Hopkins, though). Hardly something to be embarrassed about. Hopkins should be more embarrased for pulling that huge bitch move with the NON-low blows. The old man needed a break cause his legs are leaving him quickly. We're basically agreeing except I think that Bernard's stock did drop a bit. Peace-

^ i hear ya, it was funny when b-hop was takin his sweet time for that weak low blow.. but when the fight continued, hopkins owned him the rest of the round..i guess the breather worked..lol i still dont think the fight affected b-hop's status much tho. now i really would love to see ZAGHE vs KELLY
